These decadent, fudgy brownies are sure to be a crowd favorite! While they taste just as chocolaty as any other brownie, these are actually pretty unique. For one, they are made with almond flour, so they are 100 percent grain-free. Secondly, they have a boost of protein, antioxidants, and vitamins, because they are infused with black beans! Serve these straight out of the oven for a gooey treat or allow them to set in the refrigerator for a firmer bite.
